Jannik Sinner is having an incredible two years and he’s picked to win the ATP Mutua Madrid Open.

The Italian is the second favorite with tennis betting odds to win, behind only Carlos Alcaraz, who enjoys playing on clay courts.

With the withdrawal of Novak Djokovic, the tournament is wide open and there is great value available.



It’s Not a Sin to Win

Ok, we are out of sin-related puns.

The 22-year-old Sinner has been one of the best players on the ATP Tour over the last two years, and it’s good to see him reaping the rewards.

He was a beaten semifinalist at the Monte-Carlo Masters, but that followed a tournament win in Miami when beating Gregor Dimitrov in the final in straight sets 6-3, 6-1.

Victories like that are why he’s the top-ranked player in the tournament, despite the sportsbook having Alcaraz as the favorite.

There can often be a lack of respect for Sinner, who won his first Grand Slam title at the Australian Open in January. That title propelled him to the next level, and it’s hard not to like the guy.

Despite winning in Miami, he’s not resting on his laurels.

I know that I have to work even harder, because the opponents, they will find the way to beat me and I have to be prepared,” Sinner said.

Alcaraz Looking to Escape with Win

Alcaraz pulled out of Monte-Carlo and Barcelona with an arm injury, so this is his first clay tournament of the season.

The Spaniard chases history by looking to win the Mutua Madrid Open three consecutive times, which is hard to do.

He loves playing this tournament, which is why he’s being respected with tennis odds. However, backing him comes with a risk.

Despite the amount of success he has had, he has also had plenty of failures. He’s nowhere close to being as reliable as Djokovic at his best, but he’s still learning the ropes of the professional circuit.

He must be respected, and playing in front of his home fans could be enough to make him forget about his injury.

It’s Ruud Not to Bet on the Ghost

Casper Ruud wasn’t ghost-like when winning the Barcelona Open, and the 25-year-old could be realizing his potential.

The Norwegian hasn’t been the easiest player to follow over the last few years, but now that he has a recent win under his belt, he’s worth following.

He defeated Stefanos Tsitsipas in the final, which was a rematch of the Monte-Carlo Masters final that he lost in straight sets.

Looking to win over the Spaniard crowd, he mentioned Rafael Nadal in his winning speech.

It’s an incredible feeling, to be able to win this tournament is something special. I grew up watching this tournament on television and it was always a joy to see Nadal, who was the guy I idolized growing up, succeed here,” Ruud said.

The clay season plays into his hands, and bettors often get generous odds at BetUS Sportsbook for the improving star.
